Eddie Brock: Yo, Bro!
[Grabs Peter's symbiote disguised shirt and melts in his hand]
Eddie Brock: You cost me my job!
Peter Parker: [Peter then slams Eddie against a wall] Shut it! We're tired of your whining.
Security Guard: Hey, what's going on here?
Peter Parker: [Shoves Eddie] Shove off, Brock. Permanently.
Peter Parker: [after his cell phone rings] Gwen. Aw, crud. What does she want with us now?
[Shuts off his phone]
Peter Parker: Forget it. She and Brock can attend a "Pete's such a disappointment" dance together.
Flash Thompson: You sellin' tickets to that or can anyone who thinks you're a jerk attend?
Peter Parker: Don't push me, Eugene. I'm not in the mood.
Flash Thompson: Yeah, yeah. Your aunt's sick. Poor puny Parker. Even Sally feels bad for ya, but not me. If you're hanging up on the she-geek, that proves you're still a stuck-up egghead. A guy who can't even see that his friends are trying to help.
Peter Parker: [to hospital secretary] I'm here to see my aunt, May Park...
Eddie Brock: Room 204.
Peter Parker: [Turns around to see Eddie Brock; surprised] Eddie, why are you...
Eddie Brock: Because I still remember what a great lady she is. When Gwen told me Aunt May was here, I figured it was worth stomaching you for her sake. Should have guessed it wouldn't be an issue. I mean, why wouldn't you be here? She's only the woman who raised you.
Mary Jane Watson: You like Pete a lot, don't you?
Gwen Stacy: Well, yeah, I like Pete. I mean, of course I like him. I like him, he likes me, we like... It's a mutual like-fest.
Mary Jane Watson: That's not what I meant.
Gwen Stacy: You mean, do I like him like him? Well, what if the answer is... yes?
Mary Jane Watson: I get it, you and Pete, you've always been "just friends" and it's hard to risk that. But if that's not what you want, girlfriend, you'll have to step up.
Gwen Stacy: We all just want to help...
Peter Parker: Help? Help?
Peter Parker: That's a good one. How exactly do you plan on helping? Do my homework? Maybe lower my GPA? Or borrow my camera and take some Spidey pics, because I do need the money. I have some humongous hospital bills to pay!
Gwen Stacy: We're just trying to be your friends.
Peter Parker: [Angrily] Well, unless my 'friends' are prepared to pony up some cash, they can keep their help and their sympathy.
Peter Parker: Okay, if Flash Thompson is making sense, something must be seriously wrong. Why did I blow of my friends? MJ, Liz and Gwen- she's always been there for us since the seventh grade. What about the battle with the Sinister Six? The one that we slept through? Or the fact that we asked Tombstone for a job... or the fact that we keep thinking "we" instead of "I"?
